I have found that keeping these little gratitude lists is bringing a peace to my days. And sometimes, they even make me giggle….since, some of the things I am most grateful for are the things that bring me moments of laughter. (I love to laugh…even though my husband will tell you I am a quiet laugher!)
I am grateful for:
Green…the grass is starting to turn green. Green leaves are busily working to sprout on the dark branches of trees. The green beginnings of tulips are starting to surface…pushing their way through cold dirt.
Tulips – likely my favorite sign of Spring. When I see them, I feel warm and fuzzy…and confidant that the cold weather is finally going away.
Falling in love. I told my husband yesterday that it felt like he had fallen in love with me all over again and he said, “Yes, I have.” It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.
People singing in their cars. I love the freedom you have to really belt it out when you are driving by yourself. And it really makes me giggle when I catch someone doing it. 🙂
My cell phone ring, buds on trees, hope, return policies, loud laughs, coupons, checking things off a ‘to-do’ list, tickling my kids, my kids taking a nap, soda on ice (and through a straw), Fridays, listening to my husband’s radio show (I love hearing him have so much fun!), celebrating birthdays, the color red, palm trees, The Melting Pot restaurant, and starting my day with The Today Show.
And, really, truly, I am so tremendously grateful that I did not have to fly American or Delta in the past few days with my kids (or even without them).
That’s it for now.
